Mama Benz

      In many African cities, Mama Benz is the affectionate name given to the powerful women who control every last detail of the transactions carried out at the bustling fabric markets. What better name then for this Gràcia trading company, run by Bibiana and Christina, a pair of travel-savvy girls with an eye for unusual products from around the world. Situated on Gran de Gràcia, Mama Benz is a bright, open space filled with all things hand-crafted, vibrant and unique, from Akkal’s Moroccan ceramics and colourful Argentinian leather ornaments by Vacavaliente to the bamboo homewares of the Hong Kong-based company Bamboa. All products are clearly labelled with their origins, and priority is given to items with proven fair-trade credentials. Mama Benz’s owners still regularly travel the world to source new products and their store provides a haven for fellow globetrotters, in the shape of a little library corner stocked with illustrated travel guides and magazines. Show lessRead more
